CD Projekt Red’s Gwent: The Witcher Card Game was launched on beta early last year in 2017, but it will be leaving beta officially by the end of 2018. The developer announces that The Witcher Card Game will release on PC and Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, the recently announced RPG based on Gwent, will both be launching on October 23rd, 2018.
Gwent and Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales Both Have Release Dates Announced
The console version of the games will not be launching at the same time as they will need more time to develop. Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales and Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will join PS4 and Xbox One on December 4th. Gwent will support cross-play between PS4 and PC, also Xbox One and PC, however no cross-play support between consoles PS4 and Xbox One. This has been a common stance between card-based games to have cross-play between platforms, Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls Legends has recently been in the news explaining the importance of this for their game.
The official release of Gwent will happen at the same time as the Homecoming update which was teased back in April. The update comes with numerous gameplay improvements and is the biggest update that Gwent has seen yet. Visual changes include a 3D game board and new art that follows that game’s main art style.
CD Projekt Red also announced that standalone RPG inspired by Gwent card game, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales will include a mix between single-player story and puzzles that players must solve. The game follows the character Meve, who has been left to defend her kingdoms, Lyria and Rivia from the Nilfgaardian invasion. New unseen areas will be able to be explored that have not yet been covered by the The Witcher universe.
Check out the developer update below, featuring the two projects Gwent: The Witcher Card Game along side the Homecoming update and Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales which will both release on October 23rd. Those on console will have to wait for later this year when the games release on PS4 and Xbox One on December 4th.
